IoT protocols landscape

  1. 1. La Community Italiana su .NET Micro Framework IoT protocols landscape Paolo Patierno Microsoft MVP Windows Embedded @ppatierno

  3. 3. IoT communication patterns IoT protocols landscape Introduction Architecture Features HTTP CoAP MQTT AMQP Agenda
  4. 4. IoT communication patterns Telemetry Information flows from device to other systems for conveying status changes in the device Inquiries Requests from devices looking to gather required information or asking to initiate activities Commands Commands from other systems to a device or a group of devices to perform specific activities Notifications Information flows from other systems to a device or a group for conveying status changes in the world 1:N 1:N
  5. 5. IoT protocols landscape ... we could continue
  6. 6. IoT protocols trends
  7. 7. HTTP IETF standard (RFC 2616 is HTTP/1.1) CoAP IETF draft 18 (December 2013) MQTT soon (August 2014 ?) OASIS standard AMQP OASIS and ISO 19464 standard (1.0) Standardization
  8. 8. one to one one to many with more requests HTTP : request/response
  9. 9. push on client (long) polling websocket forever frame server sent events more heavyweight ASCII, text based headers, … client more complex (ASCII parser) more bytes to pay on data transfer HTTP : push and weight
  10. 10. no Quality of Service security basic & digest authentication over SSL/TLS no “messaging middleware” REST architecture resources access by URIs CRUD operations by HTTP methods HTTP : QoS and architecture
  11. 11. HTTP-like based on UDP (no TCP) request/response packet order and retrasmission into sw stack HTTP verbs, status codes, … “options” like HTTP headers but binary client more simple than HTTP observer pattern available avoid HTTP (long) polling separate response/response back after a while CoAP : binary HTTP-like
  12. 12. Quality of Service «confirmable» and non «confirmable» messages security DTLS (Datagram TLS) resource discovery (CoRE link format) CoAP node acts as server addressing problem (mobile roaming, NAT, …) REST architecture proxy CoAP – HTTP simple (with caching) CoAP : QoS and architecture
  13. 13. confirmable request CoAP : communication patterns
  14. 14. separate response/response back after a while CoAP : communication patterns
  15. 15. observer CoAP : communication patterns
  16. 16. resource discovery CoAP : communication patterns Example : </temp>;ct=50;title=Temperature</humidity>;ct=50;title=Humidity
  17. 17. block transfer CoAP : communication patterns
  18. 18. MQTT ... yesterday : Message Queue Telemetry Transport created by IBM & Eurotech today : MQ Telemetry Transport ... no queue donated to Eclipse Foundation and OASIS standard soon Features … Lightweight Reliable Simple MQTT : introduction
  19. 19. Lightweight smallest packet size 2 bytes (header) reduced clients footprint Reliable three QoS levels at most once at least once exactly once avoid packet loss on client disconnection MQTT : introduction
  20. 20. Simple TCP based : socket connection oriented Asynchronous : no wait for response Publish/Subscribe : decoupling producers and consumers Payload agnostic : no data types no metadata any data format (text, binary, JSON, XML, BSON, ProtoBuf) MQTT : introduction
  21. 21. Broker and connected Clients broker receives subscriptions from clients on topics broker receives messages and forward them clients subscribe/publish on topics Brokers bridge configuration MQTT : publish/subscribe
  22. 22. Topics for publish and subscribe hierarchical wildcards (# and +) ex. building1/+/room1, building1/floor1/room1/# MQTT : topics
  23. 23. QoS 0 : At most once (fire and forget) MQTT : Quality of Service
  24. 24. QoS 1 : At least once MQTT : Quality of Service
  25. 25. QoS 2 : Exactly once MQTT : Quality of Service
  26. 26. common big problem for all IoT protocols MQTT is over TCP … use SSL/TLS for security username/password on connection encrypt payload (MQTT is payload agnostic) MQTT : security
  27. 27. Keep-Alive message PINGREQ/PINGRESP message Broker can detect client disconnection Will & Testament will message with QoS and topic on connection broker sends on unexpected client disconnection MQTT : basic and advanced features
  28. 28. Retain message published message is kept on the broker a new subscriber on topic receives the «last known» good message Clean session on client disconnection, all subscriptions are kept no need to re-subscribe on re-connection client receives all messages published when offline MQTT : basic and advanced features
  29. 29. architecture AMQP Model (broker definition) wire protocol exchange receive messages and apply routing binding define rules to bind exchange to queue queue store messages AMQP (0.9.1)
  30. 30. AMQP Model AMQP (0.9.1) : broker architecture
  31. 31. default exchange (without a name) routing messages to a queue (routing key = name queue) direct exchange routing message to a queue based on routing key (not necessary queue name, routing key = bind key) fanout exchange routing message to more queue (pub/sub) and not use a routing key AMQP (0.9.1) : exchanges
  32. 32. topic exchange routing message to a queue based on routing key like a topic (routing key match pattern) header exchange routing message to queue based on header filters AMQP (0.9.1) : exchanges
  33. 33. architecture wire protocol and data types system container client contains producer and/or consumer broker contains queue node producer sends messages consumer receives messages queue store and/or forward messages AMQP (1.0) : containers and nodes
  34. 34. AMQP (1.0) : transport client producer (consumer) broker queue container containerconnection session link node node multiplexing frames on sessions and links transport indipendent
  35. 35. open connection/session/link AMQP (1.0) : communication channel  session handle  link
  36. 36. send messages (ex. producer to queue) AMQP (1.0) : communication
  37. 37. receive messages (ex. consumer from queue) AMQP (1.0) : communication
  38. 38. close link/session/connection AMQP (1.0) : communication
  39. 39. message header system properties (ex. correlationId, replyTo, TTL, …) custom/user properties body (opaque) message metadata most times body empty, all values as properties filter on properties properties can be changed «on fly» AMQP : messages
  40. 40. messaging middleware asynchronous : produce and consumer decoupled poll mode credit based to receive more messaging patterns load balancing on a queue (more consumers) pub/sub on queue messages redirection to queues based on filters request/response w/ «correlation id» and «replyTo» session and transactional message transfer AMQP : main features
  41. 41. efficient binary connection-oriented ”flow control” credit based packet size 60 bytes reliable Quality of Service (best effort, at least once, exactly once) security SSL/TLS SASL (Simple Authentication and Security Layer) AMQP : advantages
  42. 42. devices consider how much they are constrained network how much it is reliable messages rate how many messages per second and QoS process data needs of the system to process data (metadata ?) Conclusions
  43. 43. protocol choice depends on scenario some protocols have more features than other a complex system can use more protocols Conclusions
